    Hi, all.

    I wasn't really sure where to post this, but figured this would be as good a place as any.

    I'm working on putting together ideas for a new PC that I'll be building soon. My major purpose for this computer is for playing World of Warcraft, and while I'll be using it for a lot of other things, getting something that runs WoW smoothly is the main focus.

    What I'm really going for here is an idea of what is currently some of the better equipment on the market right now for gaming in general; as well as what hardware could get WoW running at a smooth 55-100fps consistently, regardless of what content I'm viewing (zone, battleground, boss raid, etc.) My main concern is the graphics card, processor and mobo. I've been out of the tech industry proper for a while now and my knowledge base is pretty rusty. What's the best mobo + proc combo in your opinions? Should I consider SLI?

    I'm looking for something that can stay within the $500-$1,000 dollar range, but feel free to suggest anything you think could benefit my new system as I can cut back in other areas if it starts getting out of my price range.
